Six Examples of Band Press Kits That the A &R Reps Will Surely Love


As an indie musician today, you have to be a master of music but a jack of all trades as well. That means that aside from being a musician, you have to be an accountant, an event organizer, a social media guru, and a master promoter too. Whew! Don’t you wish you could go back in time when all a musician needs to do is make music? Wait. That never happened any time in history ever because if you want a CAREER in music, you have to sell yourself. That’s what the Beatles and everyone else did. That’s what you have to do now and forever.

One of the requirements of promoting your music is the press kit. What is a press kit? It’s like a brochure that you hand out to the movers and shakers (that means the A&R, the press, the organizers, the bloggers). It contains your Demo reel, your bio, website address and other necessary information so they can write about you or gauge whether they want you to include in their line up.

A good band press kit should be direct-to-the-point, complete with all necessary items. Overloading it with fluffy stuff (not too important info) will guarantee instant turn-off. It will also guarantee that it will be in the trash bin in an instant. Here are some of the most basic but lovely band press kits for inspiration:

Notice what they all have in common? They’re easy on the eyes and not filled with sheets of paper.  They’re also easy to hold, open, and keep. These are the kind of press kits that A&R people won’t mind having. If you’re planning to make a press kit, don’t hesitate to contact us. Tell us what you want and we will help you every step of the way.
